(KSL News) The Department of Defense has established a Wounded Warrior Resource Center to help injured soldiers and their families through the recovery process.
Service members and their families can now call (801) 342-9647 or e-mail: email@example.com hours a day/seven days a week to request support.
Assistance provided by the resource center will not replace the specialized wounded warrior programs established by each of the military services. It offers another avenue of assistance for military facilities, health care services, and/or benefits information.
Specially trained consultants will identify the appropriate "warm hand-off" to either a military service or federal agency with authority to resolve the matter. The resource center consultant will maintain communication with the caller until the issue or concern is resolved.
The Wounded Warrior Resource Center meets the requirements of Section 1616 of the "National Defense Authorization Act Fiscal Year 2008" for a centralized number and ensures wounded families and caregivers have a number to call at any time.
